Govt’s efforts on Kashmir bearing fruits
The government’s efforts to internationalize the Kashmir issue is bearing fruits, as the world is now taking notice of the on-going brutalities and state terrorism by Indian occupied authorities in the occupied valley. The role of the world powers and human right organizations were not satisfactory in the past that emboldened the Indian authorities to eventually strip the special status of the valley rather to resolve the issue as per the UN resolutions.
However, owing to effective diplomacy by the government and especially after the Prime Minister Imran Khan’s strong worded speech at the United Nation General Assembly, the world started giving attention to the Kashmir issues and particularly concern regarding the barbaric and inhuman acts committing by Indian forces since August 5.
The fast changing situation could be judged from the recent visit of the US senators, who expressed deep concern over grave human rights violations in IOK and asked New Delhi to be transparent on the current situation in the disputed territory.
Democrats Christopher J Van Hollen and Margaret C Hassan also praised Pakistan for giving them and the UN military’s observers unfettered access to Azad Jammu and Kashmir, as just days New Delhi denied them permission to visit the occupied Kashmir.
They met Prime Minister Imran Khan, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa and also the leadership of AJK and discussed Kashmir situation threadbare.
Similarly, Malaysian Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohammad stressed the ways and means to sort out the Kashmir dispute.
He said that we don’t want to see any violence and that any dispute between countries should be solved amicably and we must know how to overcome this problem IOK conflict.
It is welcoming development that the world is now taking notice of the Indian barbarism and inhuman acts. However, the world should build pressure on the Indian notorious government to lift the curfew forthwith and reverse the notorious order so as to ensure peaceful solution to the decades-long dispute as the aspiration of the Kashmiri people and in accordance with the resolutions of the UN.
